Abstract : Recently the orientations of the electric field gradient (EFG) and susceptibility (chi) tensors have been determined in several iron salts. It was shown that when a monoclinic crystal field is used, and the electron ground state was a single electron or hole (S=1/2) then non-alignment of the EFG and chi is expected. It is the purpose of this report to show for the electronic system with a single electron in a d sub e orbital external to a filled subshell that the EFG and chi tensors will become reoriented with respect to each other under monoclinic symmetry.
